NBC canceled the family-history series "Who Do You Think You Are?," but that wasn't the end of the show.

Cable network TLC picked it up, and new episodes begin airing tonight at 10. First up: Kelly Clarkson learns about her lineage.

"Who Do You Think You Are" is a nicely produced, often fascinating series. Frankly, it's a huge step up from the fake Amish and polygamy shows TLC generally airs.
